Marie-Claude Rousseau, Food and Beverage Manager

Marie-Claude first fell under spell of The Brew Creek Centre while helping a friend with her wedding here. She chose to return for the beauty of the surroundings, harmony with nature and environmentally friendly philosophy. Chatting often with guests, Marie-Claude collaborates on all food and beverage programs.

A native of St-Joseph-du-Lac near Montreal, she earned a degree in fashion design, then distinguished herself in positions at Scandinave Spa and Four Seasons Resort Whistler before joining in 2018. Marie-Claude is an artsy type. She’s also a hiker, camper, paddle-boarder and Jeep explorer. Her locals-only recommendation: a summer afternoon swimming in one of Whistler’s lakes (Cheakamus or Anderson) or a winter day cross-country skiing the Callaghan Valley, followed by a decadent treat at Pure Bread and a spa retreat.

  • "Everything was about as perfect as it could be! Media and GMC execs loved the property. The weather was perfect and your place looked amazing. I heard comments that it was the perfect GMC venue with the right mix of upscale and rustic. They absolutely loved it. The food also got many oohs and aahs, especially when they realized how much is grown on property. So tasty. You should be very proud of your team, so accommodating, so professional and we really felt like we were visiting with old friends.  What a magical place! So lovely to work with The Brew Creek Centre!"

  • "Back from a 9-day business retreat at Brew Creek Centre, I have to say this is THE place for rejuvenation in a setting with superb meeting rooms and living spaces, comfortably surrounded by the natural beauty of British Columbia. Not only is the staff highly knowledgeable, they truly care. World class chef Stefan received standing ovations from our entire group of 40+, his meals being the BEST!! I look forward to my next stay at Brew Creek Centre."

  • "From the beginning of our wedding planning over a year ago, to our big day this past weekend, the staff at Brew Creek have been outstanding. The food is next-level farm-to-table, the property is serene and beautiful (rain or shine!), the accommodations heavenly and homey. A true gem in the woods. We wouldn't have had our wedding anywhere else. Thank you!"

  • "Your facility is exceptional and showed so well in the bright July sunshine that we were fortunate to enjoy. The accommodation is so comfortable and the complex so well maintained. Your staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful and always seemed to be available night or day. As for the food, it was as advertised... unbelievably delicious! I personally made a point of seeking out the chef after every meal to thank him for his efforts. This was such an important occasion for both families. Many of the guests remarked that it was THE best wedding they had ever had the privilege to attend.  It is no small thanks to you and your team that it made such a positive impression on so many. We are all so very grateful and would be remiss not to say so."

  • "Brew Creek is an amazing venue to hold a group event. Seldom does one come across a facility that combines the peacefulness and beauty of Brew Creek, with a fantastic workshop space (full of light and surrounded by forest and gardens), great accommodation, exquisite food and the personal care and attention that Pamela, Barclay and their team provide. Of all the venues I use for my programs across Canada this is one of my absolute favourites and I always look forward to the programs I run there."

Will be first on our list for our next management team meeting. Compliments to the owner for what he has achieved at TBBC, and rest assured we will spread the word for potential clients."

  • "As a bride I placed a number of prerequisites on the venue, such as superb customer service, high quality of food, accommodation for out of towners and an intimate, natural West Coast setting.  I'm thrilled to say that The Brew Creek Centre met all of my venue requirements and truly exceeded my expectations, making it an effortless process and a magical day!"

  • "From the moment we arrived to the property, we walked into an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. The Brew Creek Centre is seamless. The property is calming and soul-satisfying and the people are calm and gentle. To a person, every staff member was efficient and proficient at their work. And the food was exquisite, fresh and pleasing to the palate, laid out in a beautiful style and served with such care. My heart is full of gratitude for all of you.  "

The serenity of the location made it ideal for a retreat where everyone could relax, take a breath, and reflect - which was just what we were looking for."
